    KT Sullivan Returns to Birdland
    “I Can Cook: When Barbara Met Wally”
    February 27 – March 2 at 7pm
    Birdland TheaterBirdland Theater is proud to announce that singer KT Sullivan will perform four very special shows February 27 – March 2 at 7pm.Barbara Cook’s career was resurrected through a relationship with Wally Harper, who introduced her to the world of cabaret, which opened an amazing second act in what had been a luminous career as an actress and vocalist. A Broadway legend, Ms. Cook found her musical equal in Harper, and he found his muse in her. Then in 1980, a chance introduction to Barbara’s album “It’s Better With A Band” started KT Sullivan, a starry-eyed Oklahoma native on the way to a career in cabaret. In “I Can Cook,” KT pays tribute to both Barbara and Wally, and the amazing journey that began when they met. Featuring “Sing A Song With Me” and “It’s Better With A Band” (both written by Harper) as well as classics arranged by Wally for Barbara such as “Dancing In The Dark,” “Wait Till You See Him,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “I Love A Piano,” “Come In From The Rain,” “If Love Were All,” and “I Can Cook.” Eric Michael Gillett directs, and Jon Weber musical directs.
